Our expert says:
For your own protection in case there are any negative repercussions you need to get this man to return to his doctor and his dietitian because he could develop kidney problems if he takes so much protein and he can precipitate a hypoglycaemic attack if he does too much exercise, without having a source of carbs pre- and post-exercise (rather than protein). If he insists on continuing with body building at least get him to consult the Institute of Sports Nutrition at the University of the North-West in Potchefstroom. He should contact Dr Hattie Wright who is an expert in sports nutrition and will be able to work out a diet including pre- and post-exercise snacks and drinks so that he does not collapse or get ill. The telephone number for the Department of Human Nutrition at Potchefstroom is (018-299-2481) and ask for Dr Hattie Wright or Dr Lise Havemann-Nel. Rather safe than sorry.
